When you are quoting or paraphrasing another person's thoughts or ideas, you must cite where those thoughts or ideas have come from. If you do not cite your sources, you are plagiarizing. Plagiarism is an academic offence at UNBC. See the Regulations and Policies section of the University Calendar for a description of, and consequences as a result of, this offence.
For tips about how to lessen the chances of plagiarizing, see the Academic Success Centre's information on plagiarism at (under "Referencing/Citations").
Citing sources serves two purposes:
Consistency and accuracy are very important when you are citing sources. Pay attention to details: order of elements in the citation, punctuation, spacing, indentation, underlining, and capitalization. All these factors contribute to making the information in the citation clear to the reader.
Remember to proofread!
